I like Southland Tales almost entirely because it contains the line "And what did we do when we discovered the rift in the Fourth Dimension? We launched monkeys into it." Also "Everybody evacuate the atrium and move to the back of the Megazeppelin!"

Sometimes, all you need is a good line or two.

There's always the classic:

I loved Heavenly Creatures for the line "All the best people have lung and bone diseases. It's all so frightfully romantic".

"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

That's one of my favorite quotes. Rob Reiner's story about one of Gotti's men saying that line to him, makes it even better.

Thanks, TWoP Dietrich!

"Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."

Is there any better movie to quote than Princess Bride? My personal favorite is "You keep using that word--I don't think it means what you think it means...."

Someone mentioned 10 Things I Hate About You in Guilty Pleasures and while that whole movie is quotable, one of my favorites is this---

"I know you can be overwhelmed and I know you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?" "I think you can in Europe."

So many quotes, so little time, but I'll start with Charlie Wilson's War, one of the most quotable movies of last year (no surprise, since it's written by Aaron Sorkin). It's tough to choose a favorite, but up there is when Philip Seymour Hoffman says the following to John Slattery:

"Yeah, well, I'd like to take a moment to review the several ways in which you're a douchebag."

To make this fun, how about we make it a game? Throw out a quote, the person who gets the movie it's from gets to throw out the next one. Nothing too obscure, and we can do a 24-48 hour rule if no one gets it.

I'll start with an easy one: "I don't know nothin' about birthin' no babies!"

I had the same idea. I think a game would be fun.

You're quote is from Gone With the Wind.

Next one:

"The question isn't what are we going to do today, but what aren't we going to do today."




*edited because I thought the first one I put down might be a bit too obscure. We'll see how many movie buffs join the game before I throw it out again.

Grosse Pointe Blank

"All those ... moments will be lost in time, like tears...in rain. Time to die"
Sidenote- I had zero interest in seeing this movie until I heard that quote in a trailer. The words, combined with the image of the person speaking, were very compelling.

Blade Runner (Love that damn movie)

If you're like me it's completely easy so :

"The fire, baby. It'll burn us both. There's no place in this world for our kind of fire."

I honestly cannot tell you why I love that Line so much.

"Look at the hair. The hair is long, it's flowing, it's like a river. Well, it's a fucking weave ok? And the tits, please! I could hang my overcoat on them. Tits by design were invented to be suckled by babies. Yes, they're purely functional. These are silicon city. And look, my favorite, the shaved pubis. Pubic hair being too unruly and all. Very key. This is a mockery, this is a sham, this is bullshit. "

Redtracer: it's Closer

TenPea,is that Somersby (the civil war thing with Jodie Foster)? Otherwise I was thinking a song.

Another totally easy one but it's so messed up: He tastes like you, but sweeter. (No it's not Fall Out Boy.)

ETA: I don't know if it's allowed or something
